Welcome to the Grafton Center for Deradicalization and International Security (GCDIS). The research by Institute of Economics and Peace indicates that 93% of all terrorist attacks between 1998 and 2014 occurred in countries with high levels of radicalization, state sponsored terror, involving extrajudicial killing, torture, and imprisonment without trial. Similarly, over 90 per cent of all terrorist deaths occurred in countries already engaged in some form of conflict whether internal or international. This means only 0.5 per cent of terrorist attacks occurred in countries that did not suffer from conflict or political terror. This underlines the close link between existing conflicts, radicalization, grievances and political violence with terrorist activity.
Grafton Center for Deradicalization and International Security is a multi-disciplinary and non-partisan research department of Grafton College that addresses the most important challenges to UK national security and international security in the current wake of radicalization and terrorist threats posed by organizations such as Al Qaeda, ISIS, Boko Haram etc,. According to the journal International Security stated in 1976, "We define international security broadly to include the full array of factors that have a direct bearing on the structure of the international system and the sovereignty of its members, with particular emphasis on the use, threat, and control of force."
GCDIS would publish reports, briefings, research papers and books and would hold conferences and seminars on the topics of Deradicalization, International Security, Global Intelligence, Peace and Harmony. We would engage governments, the private sector, civil society and its members in open debate and confidential discussion on the most significant developments in international affairs. The Center would run private and public events – conferences, workshops and roundtables – in London and internationally. GCDIS envisions research and policies for strategic national and global inquest, realizing the significance of traditional and non-traditional security challenges.
Program researchers would analyse security issues rigorously, draw prescriptive conclusions, and communicate their recommendations directly to makers of public policy and shapers of public opinion.
